Anything Like End Links for Rear?

I'm curious if there is anything like the front end links that are for the rear? Since I'm getting my whole suspension done, would like to get that item (if it exists) replaced too.

Thanks for the help guys.

Yea, there is end links on the rear= the flat part of the bar to the lower control arms. Are you upgrading the rear bar? If so should come w/ the end link/ bushing kit. You can get a bushing/link kit for the stock bar too. Plus you can also replace the rubber bar mount bushings w/ poly bushings to stiffen up the bar slightly, quicker response.

As always, thank felix. Big help.

You had mentioned to me that I should wait to upgrade from stock bar until I get the feel of my new suspension.

I'm unsure if they are shot or not. Have never changed them either and am almost at 100k miles. So they are probably shot. Your opinions?

Depends on what your budget is & also your time. If your redoing your suspension & have the cashola for a bar kit, I'd do it. Get the Eibach sway bar kit, which comes w/ everthing you need. 22mm/25mm. Don't get the H&R bars, you don't want a 24mm front bar.

Yea thats the kit. You can see the rear end link/ bar bushings there too. For the front has bar bushings & of course hook to the front end links.

Well... pulled the trigger on it. I'm done upgrading my car for now. I spent wayyyyy more than I wanted! lol

It is just too damn fun upgrading things. The only reason I'm doing it is because I want my car to last as long as possible. And the fact that I'm literally using it for DD, I'll get to enjoy it.

Question: How will these help or hinder me in the winter? Obviously, when going around turns on snow or slush covered roads, you take your time and slow down. But will these help provide better control also?

Upgrading to a bigger rear bar will tranfer diagonal weight to the inside front wheel for better traction out of the corners. Improves turn in which is a more postive response & easier to rotate mid corner.
